Green Space has announced a diverse roster of artists for its signature programs this September. Take Root will present an evening of work by Nicole Colbert Dance/Theatre & Logos Dance Collective on September 21st and 22nd, and Fertile Ground showcases works-in-progress by multiple dance artists on September 23rd.

“Green Space is singular in providing a quality studio to create dance, while offering various simultaneous performance opportunities to share the work with peers and public.” —Hoong Yee Lee Krakauer, executive director, Queens Council on the Arts.

Take Root, now in its 10th season, nurtures dance artists at established stages in their careers, pairing them in a split bill or full evening-length program. This monthly series supports dance makers’ experimentation and growth by providing its venue, Green Space, along with full technical and marketing support to present their work to the NYC public.

On September 21st & 22nd, 8pm: Nicole Colbert Dance/Theatre’s “Where have you been, where are you going?” explores the journey away from and toward home as a physical, emotional and psychological place. The piece also contends with feminist, political and social identities in relationship to “home,” in literal and metaphorical terms. Weaving together dance, theatre, music and text, the work utilizes personal narratives that are conciliatory as well as revelatory, sometimes attached to landscapes, to further explore multiple meanings and layers in our associations with home.

Advance sale tickets: $15 online at www.GreenSpaceStudio.org; Tickets purchased at door: $20 cash, $22 credit card.

Fertile Ground has supported emerging and established artists for 13 seasons, showcasing the work of over 50 choreographers each year. The non-curated program features 5-6 dance makers each evening and includes a post-performance discussion with wine, moderated by Green Space’s Artistic Director, Valerie Green. On September 23rd, Elaine Tripoulas, Last Minute Applicant, Molly Kennedy, the lab, Thryn Saxon and Emily Tellier, and Wonderland Wizehart will perform starting at 7 pm. Tickets are $15 at door and online at www.GreenSpaceStudio.org.
